not sure....but I think you should add these mods and try pimping at your local Starbucks....

Fur Seats
Neon Lights under the plastic fairings
Neon License Plate Frame
Dice Valve Stem caps (or the flashing colors if you prefer)
maybe some a "bicycle horn"
and some streamers from your bar ends.....

BTW,
thanks for not showing up on Saturday....I appreciated it.

What kind of mods are you talking about?
Most of my mods are for comfort or for track purposes.

Well, some cosmetic for the street bike
